The only “yes” you need to follow your dreams is yours.
Those who are unstoppable are in their own world. They don’t compete with anyone but themselves. You never know what they will do—only that you will be forced to respond. Even though they don’t compete with you, they make you compete with them.
Are you unstoppable?
Don’t compete with others. Make them compete with you.
Most people are competing with other people. They continuously check-in to see what others in their space (their “competition”) are doing. As a result, they mimic and copy what’s “working.”
Conversely, you’ve left all competition behind. Competing with others makes absolutely zero sense to you. It pulls you from your authentic zone. So you zone out all the external noise and instead zone in to your internal pressure to produce.
Being unstoppable means you genuinely want what’s best for everyone—even those you would consider your competitors. Jealousy and envy are the ego—which operates out of fear.
The reason you are happy for other people’s success is because their success has nothing to do with you.
You are in control of you. And you are different from every other person. There is no one who can do exactly what you can do. You have your own superpower with your own unique ability to contribute. And that’s what you’re going to do.
People who follow their dreams are doers. Doers have more power to create, influence, and change their environment… and eventually the world.👊🌎 ...
Day 19 - Perfectly Tiny
My sunflowers are growing!!! I am so excited. They're so perfect and tiny but one day they'll grow up and be beautiful sunflowers. Unless I kill them in the mean time. I imagine this is how it feels to be a new mum...The excitement that they're growing and doing what they should, but uncertainty that you're going to do something wrong. That said, the responsibility of keeping the cats and flowers alive is definitely more than enough for me!
I'm off to Google how to babysit sunflowers. I've left them in the sun for a little bit as the soil is still super wet, which I can't imagine is a good thing... Although obviously they're going to need water because they're plants. But I don't want to drown the poor things. Does this ever get easier?!? Thank you so much to @jonpaulclark , @__itslucy__
and @littlehouseinlondon for setting up @mygardenthismonth and inspiring me every day to try something new in the garden - even if I have no clue what I'm doing 95% of the time!
Today, at Moesgard Museum, Denmark,
I had the wonderful opportunity to join Khenpo Pema lak along with Lama Tashi lak in the closing ceremony of Buddha and the 16 Arahats Sand Mandala ritual. This is my second time here as I was also a part in the group who came here to create the mandala probably three months ago. This Sand Mandala is a part of the Exhibition known as "Impermanence" and since the whole exhibition has to come to an end just as everything in the nature that has a beginning, has a middle and has an end too, we dismantled the mandala and later offered the holy sand in a pond nearby the museum. A large number of people came here to witness this event and were very happy to receive the blessings of the Dharma and its ritual. Therefore, it brings an immence joy to me for being a part of this wonderful event.
